The well-known television host initially stated that he is actually very vocal about his feelings with regards to the closure of his home network.

Boy then mentioned that he does not have a platform to voice out his opinions more often about the heavy issues being experienced by the Kapamilya network.

While admitting that he is also in pain because of what happened, he stressed that people have varied ways of expressing grief.

He even said that it is invalid for someone to judge other people just because they choose not to be very vocal about the issue.

“The king right now has no home. The king is poor… And I am serious. I don’t have a platform. Had I been doing ‘Tonight with Boy Abunda,’ I would have had a space where I would have voiced out my opinions about the Congressional hearings…” Boy quipped.

“When I’m in grief, I am quiet. When I am in pain, I am quiet. I don’t like being fussed over… I’d like to be quiet… But that is not tantamount to saying na hindi ako nasaktan… Is it valid to judge others who chose not to? That’s a different level,” he added.
